    Default Done the £1 swirl fix! spanner light as my reward!!

    I done the how to swirl linkage £1 fix, and it went well, until I started car!! never had any spanner lights before, getting fault code P1109-61, tried to clear the code but it just comes back on none of the valves were stock either I could move them all easily enough,

    I'm guessing its wear ant tear and I need a new manifold, however I managed to get the spanner light off when number one swirl was not attached to the linkage (one being closest to the timing belt

    the car was and still is driving very well with lots of power, so not exactly sure what these swirl valves do

    Any comments, experiences most welcome.

    thanks Ronnie
